DALLAS – 7th October 2021 – Old World, the critically acclaimed historical 4X strategy game from Civilization IV’s lead designer Soren Johnson, unveiled a new trailer announcing a release date of Spring 2022 for Steam and GOG through publisher Hooded Horse. Additionally, a brand-new expansion campaign will arrive alongside the Steam and GOG releases.

“We’re immensely excited to be working with the legendary Soren Johnson,” said Tim Bender, CEO of publisher Hooded Horse. “Old World has already created waves with fans of the strategy genre, and we’re proud to help Mohawk Games reach a wider audience through Steam and GOG and continue the game’s success via post-release content such as expansion campaigns.”

Previously published by developer Mohawk Games on the Epic Games Store as part of a timed exclusive, Old World is a historical 4X turn-based strategy game where you lead your empire through multiple generations, building a grand legacy which lasts well beyond your own years. With a deep mix of management, diplomacy, and warfare alongside unique revolutionary improvements to the classic 4X strategy formula — including the incorporation of a dynasty building mechanic, a limited-use undo button to quickly correct mistakes, and a unique order system to control the movement of your units — Old World has been well received by critics and players alike and currently holds an 82 score on Metacritic.
